Publisher's Summary

Can love mend a heart full of hatred?

Small town girl, Molly Bennett, moves to Los Angeles where she becomes an outsider while attending Beverly Hills High School. It seems life cannot be any more dreadful. Then one day after school, something magical happens.

On a secluded hike in the Hollywood Hills, Molly chases her disobedient mutt and only friend into a hidden cavern. She stumbles upon a strange glimmering gateway that transports her to Arkana, a planet that is the cradle of an advanced human race. There, teenagers navigate amazing flying vehicles, compete in perilous games for glory, and possess supernatural powers.

While Molly tries to wrap her mind around this unbelievable discovery, she meets the alluring and mysterious Victor Sorren. He is a Sentinel Apprentice, whose hatred toward people from Earth is beyond understanding. Yet every time Victor unpredictably saves Molly’s life, his heart draws closer to hers, no matter how much he tries to fight against it. It further complicates things that their growing friendship is strictly forbidden.

Earth people are prohibited in Arkana, yet Molly continues to cross through the portal to Arkana to see Victor. Torn between their double lives, they go down a dangerous path, from where there is no return and multiple endings.

Would you fight to be with the one you truly love? What cost would you be willing to sacrifice for that love?

Fields of Elysium is a suspenseful romantic tale full of forbidden secrets, danger, deception, and the never-ending fight for true love.

Now I am hooked.

I am not going to give up on either the writing or the narration.
I was given this audiobook to review and wish I could give it 5 stars, but I just can’t. The author has other books and this is a new series for her and I think it will be a good one. Her premise is a really good one. Her teen angst is excellent. Her heroine is believably inconsistent in her feelings. I expected to feel more bewilderment from her initially and that is my single knock against the writing. So it would almost be a 5 star story.
The narration, however, was stilted. It was read and not acted. The narrators voice is believably young and I liked that. Her male voices were good and some of the female friends were as well. However, just as I was getting into the story, there would be a phrase or two that was so clearly being read that I got kicked out again. Given the voices and youthful sound I think this narrator will be very good with more experience. 3 stars to her.
I really want this series to do well.

Fields of Elysium

Two people from different worlds, drawn together. Molly has found the gateway to Arkana, where she meets Victor. She is immediately drawn to him, but it’s forbidden for humans to be in Arkana. Is true love worth the sacrifices?

A.B. Whelan has created a wonderful world. One that I’d love to hear more about.

A-Shay Walker’s narration was well done.

Being the new girl

Molly is new to town. She's got a new school, new secret portal to a distant land, and new friends.

A.B. Whelan explores what it's like being a young woman as she comes to terms with all the new things that come from growing up and finding where you fit.

A-Shay Walker delivers a good narration doing a great job as being Molly while she discovers all the new places she can go as well as all the new feelings she can experience.

Fields of Elysium

This was a nice story with an intriguing concept. Molly, our MC, stumbles across a wormhole that takes her to another planet where she discovers "aliens" that are just like humans. The journey through her discovery of the other world and falling in love there while also trying to navigate a new high school, a new state, and overbearing parents makes for a story interesting enough that I completed it in less than 24 hours. There are more books to come in this series, but this one ends with a happily ever after.... at least for now. I enjoyed the story enough that when the next comes out I will definitely be listening to it as well. The narration was pretty good, maybe just a little stiff at times, but nothing that takes away from the story experience. It's a good book, and worth your time! I received a free copy of this book for review purposes and am voluntarily leaving this honest review.

Solid Portal Fantasy

Life is never easy as the new girl, and for Molly, this is as true of a statement as any. After becoming an outcast in her new town, she goes for a walk and discovers a secret portal leading to another world. She is fascinated and shellshocked, even more so when she discovers that she fits in better on the other side…even though it is illegal for her to be there. Swept up in her feelings for a boy named Victor, she throws caution to the wind and continues to slip into the portal.

Very wonderful worldbuilding in this story, and the teen angst was definitely on par. Molly as a whole, however, I felt could’ve used a bit more character development. She seemed a bit flat to me, but that might be because she was so smitten which in that case makes her as real of a teenager as any.

There are some wonderful descriptions in this book, and it definitely takes the reader on a journey.

We really enjoyed this book.

An interesting and unique idea. The story is well written and kept our interest. We are curious to see where book two takes the characters. We would recommend this book.

The narration was good.
